This painting, "The Dreamer", was inspired by Charlie Morley's Lucid Dreaming masterclass on Mindvalley.

I taught myself to lucid dream at 19 or 20 years old and then went on to spend a full semester studying dreams during my master's degree. Then I let my lucid dream practice slide because, at the time, I felt that I wasn't getting full value from my dreams by trying to control them.

When I listened to Charlie Morley's masterclass, I knew his teachings contained the techniques I'd been missing - tools that would allow me to use lucid dreaming to deepen my relationship with the Unconscious. I was immediately determined to reawaken my lucid dreaming powers, and especially to start having healing lucid dreams.

As an alchemical artist and Art Witch, I create art to support the healing process. So I set out to create a painting to help me start lucid dreaming again.

Each day I worked on the painting, I listened to Charlie Morley's books to help me focus on my intention. In the first two months after getting to work on this painting, I had five lucid dream healings, and went on to have many more. 

The abstract intuitive painting is 36 x 48, acrylic on gallery canvas and incorporates symbolism. Original painting only; frame not included. (Mockup scale is not exact. Please measure your space prior to purchasing.)
